can someone help with list of calcium rich foods?

I have been looking for a pretty complete list of calcium rich foods. I have dairy covered, and I am looking for calcium content in other foods, such as fruits, vegetables, nuts and beans in particular.

Does anyone have such a list?

I'm interested in the basic foods, like broccoli or oranges, not prepared or prepackaged foods like fortified orange juice or packaged broccoli with cheese sauce.

Thanks.

Here are some:
Non dairy sources of calcium such as legumes, leafy green vegetables, tortillas made with limestone, tofu, nuts and foods where bones are consumed such as sardines and salmon.

(the salmon and sardines refer to the very soft bones in the canned product...DON'T eat the bones in fresh salmon <choke!>
Tofu is a great source because it's curdled with calcium sulfate.

collard greens, chickpeas, tahini, and my personal favorite dried figs (they are like candy. mmmm. sweet nectar of the gods)

Sesame seeds and blackstrap cane molasses are another couple of non-dairy foods that are high in calcium. Of course, as already mentioned: spinach, collard greens, turnip greens, and mustard greens.

leafy greens are the best source of calcium since their calcium is in a form that the body can assimilate easily, unlike that of milk which is bound to a protein called casein which is hard for the body the body to digest. almonds are a very good source too.
